The six teaser image of the JX crossover has been unveiled by Infiniti, giving a best appearance at the front end design of the upcoming model the seven- seat luxury crossover which will be soon launched.
The JX appears to adopt front end design hints from the freshly redesigned FX which has inspired by the Essence show car. The infinity traditional style will be maintaining in the CUV.
The vehicle will be most likely based on the same swoopy lines employed on the G and M sedans. From the previous images appears the presence of Infiniti’s signature chrome bar grille along with the company’s logo front and center.
The JX model will be appeared in concept car form at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in August firstly before held a production model debuts in November at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Sale of the JX is estimated to start in the beginning of next year.
Considering the JX will be launched in the next few years, the JX will slot in above the same five- seat FX and below the seven or eight- seat QX. However, mostly Infiniti seems to be ahead to present a real three- row crossover to luxury buyers. Most of the JX’s competitor offers either five- seat model or more utility oriented SUVs such as the Lexus GX 460 and Land Rover LR4. From Mercedes Benz the JX have to face against the GL Class, Audi Q7 and Lincoln MKT.
The JX is planned to stand on Nissan’s front wheel drive ‘D’ platform although so far Infiniti has shifted to rear- wheel drive. The JX might be empowered by Infiniti’s 3.7 liter V6, but a hybrid model also expected to join the JX lineup.
The whole shape outside the JX is obviously based on the Audi Q7. The difference is only on its details in which the JX employs swoopy styling all around, representing last year QX56 details.
The switchgear, Infiniti’s unique round heated, ventilated seat knobs and its small leather-wrapped gear lever apparently taken from other Infiniti models. The styling of the JX, particularly its more conservative door panel treatment looks not as expressive as that found in Infiniti’s midsize M sedans.
